You try not to think about being part of a car accident, but you know that this could happen any time you hit the road. Even if you're doing your part in staying safe, other drivers aren't always taking the same level of caution.
As in the case of other states, police in Kentucky can assume a person is legally drunk and thus subject to a DUI charge when a motorist in Louisville has over .08 blood alcohol content. This is an important legal tool for police, since it allows them to pursue drunk driving more aggressively.
Even responsible drivers in the Louisville area may unconsciously overlook the bicyclists with whom they share the road. After all bicycles are hard to see, and, oftentimes, bicyclists do not even ride on the roadways, opting instead to use a nearby trail or even the sidewalk.
Probably one of the most stressful things an injured person has to do after getting hurt in a car accident or other incident is file a claim with the insurance companies of the parties responsible for the injuries.
A previous post on this blog reminded Louisville residents who are contemplating going under the knife or having another medical procedure of their rights and options.
